Kittens Galore

kit01 kit02 kit03kit05Billie, Bambi and Bobby were all born around April 1st.

They’ve been treated against fleas, ticks and worms and have had their first vaccinations.

Now all they need are homes.

Billie is female, the other two are male.

Billie and Bambi are sister and brother and their mother gave birth to them

on the doorstep of a very kind lady who took them in and looked after them

so they have been brought up as domestic cats.

Poor little Bobby was found abandoned at an unofficial cat feeding station

so he is a little more timid.

However, having been put together with the other two, he has blossomed and, like them, loves his playtime and cuddles and has a lovely loud purr.

If you can offer any or all (she says hopefully) of them a loving home, please contact 665 415 901 or email fiona4cas at gmail dot com.

They are in the Trapiche / Vinuela area.

Thank you




Thank you

A big thank you to the person who found a wallet and diary in the vicinity of the new Mercadona in Nerja on Saturday and handed it in to the store.  There had not been  credit cards in in the wallet and only a little cash, but the diary is full of phone numbers.

It is lovely to know that honest people are still around.    Bruce



Agua Fuerte warning!

Someone recommended agua fuerte for household use. Take care, it is concentrated hydrocloric acid! The vapors are dangerous to inhale. And destroys all metal parts.This stuff shouldn´t be commonly available!

Try in vinegar instead, soak some paper tissue o place on vertical surfaces. Perhaps use the 8-10% versión, which can be found in supermarkets (Mercadona) among cleaning stuff.




BeeBee Homed!

For Sale –2006 Opel Corsa cdti


128000 kms.  ITV May 2017 Tax paid to March 2017
2000 euros ono. Torre del Mar area.
Tel. 951067778 or jp rundlett @ hotmail.com




For Sale-1976 XT500 Classic Motorbike

MB03 MB02 MB01

3000 euros is the price I would accept for this classic motorcycle-

the bike has had a full engine rebuild, top to bottom, 95% of parts are available to complete this long term restoration project.

The photos do not do it justice as we only have a mobile phone in a small workshop.

A full re spray has been done.

A wiring loom would be required, –available on the internet.

I have the English V5 registration document (although not in my name)-not a problem for the DVLA.

A great investment,– only being sold due to the space needed for the maintenance of my Quad bike business repairs.

I would say viewing is essential–but negotiating on the price is not an option.
